Confront your fears, take control of them, use them to remember your past and learn to move forward.

A Word From the Developer

In the Shadows was a solo project developed on my own over the course of three years. It is a piece of me, inspired by personal stories and events that I have experienced and a story that I wanted to share with the world. I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I enjoyed making it!
